Last week we celebrated the 4th of July at Bates Creek. It was a traditional holiday.
There was food
Casey’s taco dip
Heavy bike traffic
Justin and Lynn’s Fishing Academy
Somehow every year I have to help Mom in the kitchen and then miss out on most of the fishing and hiking up the slippery rocks and just make it in time to take pictures. It’s so weird how that happens every year.
Boating in the beaver dam
I had the camera so I couldn’t get in which was really unfortunate. We did not see the beavers, although we thought we spotted a shark but then again it might not have been.
Joe and I hiked to the top of the hill and took these scenery shots.
Last year there was a lot of smoke in the pictures, thank goodness that was not the case this year.
And then there was eating, drinking and merriment. It was a very good day. Followed by sitting on a hill away from all the traffic watching the fireworks over Alcova Lake. We hope you all had just as much fun with your 4th of July traditions.
